The Coolest Winter Promotional Giveaways To Heat Up Your Marketing

It's time to rummage through your wardrobes to dig out your warmest coats, cosiest knitted jumpers and fluffiest bobble hats. Not forgetting to pop the kettle on every hour to refill your hot water bottle because - brace yourself - winter is almost here.

Although the British winter can be rather miserable, there are plenty of ways to make even the wettest and coldest of days that bit more bearable. Total Merchandise has an array of wonderful winter promotional giveaways that are really snow joke - pardon the pun.


You may have noticed that the last couple of winters have been notably milder in the UK compared to previous years - in fact, the winter of 2019-2020 was the fifth mildest since 1884! This pattern is predicted to continue into the upcoming months, with the UK Met Office forecasting above-average temperatures for winter 2020-2021. Umbrellas at the ready though - they're also foreseeing above-average rainfall...

With that being said, unfortunately, we won't be seeing a southern hemisphere-type of winter. So, as much as you might like to ditch the deicer and beanie hats, they will still be very much needed by your customers and your colleagues.

Whilst the British winter might be a bit miserable, it's not all doom and gloom - rather, it can present the perfect opportunity to market your business and make your customers' days that bit more bearable with must-have seasonal items.

Promotional Winter Items For UK Pubs And Restaurants

If you run a business within the hospitality industry - be it a pub, bar, restaurant or cafe - you will be looking at ways to carry on in conjunction with the latest government guidelines around Coronavirus. If you're based in a region that falls into tier two, then we've got seasonal items that will make your customers' experience more comfortable whilst offering constant exposure of your brand.

For customers that are seated outdoors, an obvious way to keep warm whilst they indulge in their favourite food or sip on their desired drinks is to wrap up in layers. Are you wanting to make sure your patrons are warm enough while enjoying your outside area, even on the chilliest of days? Then our branded fleece blankets are an excellent choice and available from just £3.99 per unit, meaning they won't break the bank. (They're also available to order from just 25 units, too!)

Winter sees an increase in the common cold - as if COVID-19 wasn't enough to think about - so having plenty of hand sanitiser available onsite for customers and staff to use will definitely be beneficial, don't you think? Our Wall-Mounted Hand Sanitiser Dispensers feature a touch-free automatic sensor, eliminating the need for people to make direct contact with it. Boasting a generous 1200ml capacity and easily refilled, this clever useful-all-year branded hand sanitiser station will continue to advertise your business long after winter has passed.

Of course, it's not just about making your customers happy - you also need to consider your team, too. Add these zipped fleece jackets to your employees' uniform to keep them warm during their shifts. Embroidered with your logo, these branded fleeces are stylish and durable, resulting in a fantastic long-term investment.

Seasonal Merchandise To Add To Your Workplace

Although some of the population continue to work from home, there are plenty of companies that are returning to - or have never left - the workplace. Whether you're reopening the office or bringing furloughed employees back to work, or your workforce has been working as normal throughout the summer, ensuring you've got the right products to help your team get through the winter is essential.

Whether your staff are travelling to the office or simply operating from their bed-to-desk WFH setup, make the morning commute - and the morning in general - that bit easier with branded travel mugs.

Our best-selling reusable coffee cups are designed to keep the user's favourite beverages at the optimal temperature for longer, whilst keeping your brand on prime display with every sip. They're also fantastic for adding an eco-friendly touch to your winter marketing campaign as they can help reduce the amount of single-use takeaway coffee cups being used. Great, right? 

The British winter isn't solely about the cold and wet weather - there's also the welcome advent of shorter days and less sunlight. This year, the winter solstice falls on Monday 21st December, marking the shortest day of the year. From schools to constructions sites, promotional hi-vis clothing is a brilliant way of illuminating your brand during the winter. 

Our Safety Reflective Vests comprise a fluorescent background and two reflective stripes for enhanced visibility for the wearer on even the darkest days. Ideal for safety on the roadside, at sporting events and on construction sites, and so much more, each of these branded hi-vis vests features your logo printed on the front for high-impact business exposure. They're great for awareness, as well as for showing your employees that you have their health and safety at the core of your business.

Promotional Tissue Boxes Printed All Over with Full Colour Design by Total Merchandise
Tissue Boxes

From £0.96

Perfect for owning a spot on any desk, these printed tissue boxes will also put your brand on prime display. We all hate not having a tissue to-hand when we need one, so make sure your staff each has a supply nearby with their very own box of tissues. Printed with your corporate design all over the outside of the box, they're sure to draw attention to your branding and can be bought in bulk to ensure you never run short.

Treat Your Customers With Cool Wintery Giveaways

As the nights begin to draw in and the temperatures start to drop, it's a great idea to send your customers merchandise that will make tackling the winter a bit more bearable - all the while advertising your brand. And at our great low-lost prices, you really can't go wrong!

Are you looking for a promotional item that will put your brand in the hands of your customers when they need you most? Yes? Then look no further than our Deluxe Ice scrapers. Available in a range of vibrant colours and printed with your logo in full colour to the front, they offer great usability to the recipient and lasting exposure of your business.

Perfect for wandering through the car park at night or finding that coin you just dropped, our best selling promotional torch keyrings combine functionality with brilliant brand awareness. Each of these branded keyrings features a handy and easy to use torch that's printed with your company design, meaning your customers and clients will carry your brand with them wherever they go.


If you're looking for a fun yet practical promotional wintery giveaway, these Reflective Slap Wrap Wristbands are for you! Great for your seasonal campaigns and aimed at children, these printed wristbands do exactly as the name suggests: the user simply needs to 'slap' it on their wrists to secure it and with a range of nine reflective colours they also offer extra visibility in the dark. One further bonus? They're the perfect size for mailing out to customers, too. 

From printed ice scrapers to branded umbrellas, antibacterial lanyards to beanie hats, we have brrr-illiant promotional winter giveaways to heat up your marketing campaigns this winter. Need help finding a specific item? Simply contact a member of our friendly and experienced Sales team on 01376 509092 or email today.
